William T. Grant Scholars Program
Applications are due July 1, 2004 for this year’s William T. Grant Scholars program. Post-doctoral scholars from academic institutions or tax-exempt organizations in the United States and abroad are eligible to apply. Each year, the foundation chooses four to six applicants who demonstrate creative and intellectually rigorous research plans that focus on one of these areas:
- Youth development
- Programs, policies, and institutions that affect young people
- Adults’ attitudes and perceptions of young people.
Research should focus on youth ages 8 to 25. Each grantee is awarded $300,000 over 5 years. Awards will be announced in March 2005.
The program, now in its 24th year, has funded more than 110 Scholars since its inception. Find more information on the William T. Grant Foundation website, at www.wtgrantfoundation.org/info-url_nocat3042/ info-url_nocat_list.htm?attrib_id=4398 (Editor's note: Link no longer active).
